MUSIC


“The EP “South City Revival” is short, 21 minutes, but every second is a must, every note, every word sung is sensational... the band’s sound is a blend of Country and Roots Rock from the best I’ve heard.”

BIO


 

Penning songs with an introspective take on country music, South City Revival blends country, rock & roll, and rhythm & blues into a unique, high energy sound. The quintet met in the parking lot of a Western Ave. bar and decided they wanted to write songs like Townes Van Zandt and play shows like Bruce Springsteen. They asked each other "what does Chicago country sound like?" -- A question that has shaped the sound and aesthetic of South City Revival since its formation.

In 2017, SCR teamed up with Chicago studio guru Mike Hagler (Wilco, My Morning Jacket, Waco Brothers) to record their self-titled, debut EP at his Humboldt Park Studio. The release features a captivating blend of story driven songwriting and high energy studio performances.
